Daily Tasks & A Lesson From A Butterfly

Hello friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Pipevine Swallowtail Visiting Joe Pye Weed 82020” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

The sweet scent of the wildflowers drifts in the humid air. The ever present songbirds call from hidden perches in the thick canopy. I stood there enjoying the blessings of life in Appalachia as the pipevine Swallowtail sailed in on the breeze. And deftly lit on the buds of the Joe Pye Weed. Her world is one of a constant struggle for survival and yet she carries peaceful contentment on her wings. I have to wonder if her secret is that she only concerns herself with the task at hand. When it’s time to evade the bird she dips and flips and the bird is confounded. When she’s hungry she feeds on one bloom at a time and when she’s done she dances in the wind. She has all the tasks that are common to life on planet earth but she doesn’t try to do them all at once. She simply takes care of them as the need arises and when they’re complete she leaves that task done.
